Louis C.K. Responds To Sexual Misconduct Allegations: "These Stories Are True"

Tyler Durden's picture

"Please stop it with voting for Trump. It was funny for a little while. But the guy is Hitler. And by that I mean that we are being Germany in the 30s. Do you think they saw the shit coming? Hitler was just some hilarious and refreshing dude with a weird comb over who would say anything at all."

       — Louis C.K. in the postscript of an email blast promoting his - now canceled - web series ’Horace and Pete.’
           Later in the PS, the comedian called Trump an "insane bigot," "dangerous," and "a fucking liar."


And so another liberal Hollywood career is flushed down the drain, taking the express elevator of hypocricy straight to the bottom. Comedian Louis C.K., who was recently accused of sexual misconduct by five women, just said in a statement Friday that all the allegations are true:

I want to address the stories told to the New York Times by five women named Abby, Rebecca, Dana, Julia who felt able to name themselves and one who did not.These stories are true.


At the time, I said to myself that what I did was okay because I never showed a woman my dick without asking first, which is also true. But what I learned later in life, too late, is that when you have power over another person, asking them to look at your dick isn't a question. It's a predicament for them. The power I had over these women is that they admired me. And I wielded that power irresponsibly.


I have been remorseful of my actions. And I've tried to learn from them. And run from them. Now I'm aware of the extent of the impact of my actions. I learned yesterday the extent to which I left these women who admired me feeling badly about themselves and cautious around other men who would never have put them in that position.


I also took advantage of the fact that I was widely admired in my and their community, which disabled them from sharing their story and brought hardship to them when they tried because people who look up to me didn't want to hear it. I didn't think that I was doing any of that because my position allowed me not to think about it.


There is nothing about this that I forgive myself for. And I have to reconcile it with who I am. Which is nothing compared to the task I left them with.


I wish I had reacted to their admiration of me by being a good example to them as a man and given them some guidance as a comedian, including because I admired their work.


The hardest regret to live with is what you've done to hurt someone else. And I can hardly wrap my head around the scope of hurt I brought on them. I'd be remiss to exclude the hurt that I've brought on people who I work with and have worked with who's professional and personal lives have been impacted by all of this, including projects currently in production: the cast and crew of Better Things, Baskets, The Cops, One Mississippi, and I Love You Daddy. I deeply regret that this has brought negative attention to my manager Dave Becky who only tried to mediate a situation that I caused. I've brought anguish and hardship to the people at FX who have given me so much The Orchard who took a chance on my movie. and every other entity that has bet on me through the years.


I've brought pain to my family, my friends, my children and their mother.


I have spent my long and lucky career talking and saying anything I want. I will now step back and take a long time to listen.


Thank you for reading.

I'm with you -- I  hardly know who he is.

I think I will be the first to coin a new term. Instead of someone jacking off or beating off, now when someone wants to masturbate they will go Louie Louie!

insanelysane's picture

I still don't know who this guy is.  ???

Smilygladhands's picture

Well just look at him. Of course he has to force himself on women.

He keeps talking about all the people who admire him, and look up to him. Have you ever met anyone that admires Louis CK?  Me neither.

shovelhead's picture

That's the tell he's all horseshit.

Is there any normal person out there that would say to an employee "If you want to keep your job you'll let me jack off on you."

I didn't think so. Admired? This guys got a screw loose.

Jesus these people have killed my fetish for whacking off for women.

Just video them with their legs spread in front of you as they tell you they want you to come for them.

Whoever actually wrote that should copyright the template.  There should be a good market for it over the next year or so.

Heywood Jablomi's picture

hey, would anybody here like to see my dick?

exartizo's picture

Well if he wrote it, he's genuinely remorseful.

i'm inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt.

he that is without sin among you, let him cast the first stone.

baldknobber's picture

I think one of the things that pisses people off about him, is that this fucker has been chucking rocks for years. All with a condescending smile on his face. Dirtbag has been jacking off in front any girl he can corner and he's telling my I'm a sick unstable person because I support the second amendment ????   Makes giving him a pass a little challenging 

Dougs Decks's picture

Well, being of his religeon, race, political power structure,,, What ever you call being a Joo,,, At least he didn't have to pull his hoodie down to show them the important end,,,


        And it does add a twist to they old phrase 'Go Away, I'm Baitin'",,, Hey come here, Im gonna "Bait,,,

DrewJackson's picture

He is a comedian not a senator....  wait .... what...  

Has their ever been a great edgy comedian who was normal??   I think next stand up show, he should just pull it out and laugh!!  

The only good part of this is it continues the Trump curse.....  SUCKERS!!!  If we can keep this rate up for 7 more years, it will be the best EVER!!!

Rosie O'Donnell. Kathy Griffin. Louie CK, Kevin Spacey, Harvey Weinstein - any other smug Hollyweasel with a GED want to take a public pot shot at Trump?

If you're an adult and someone asks you if it's ok to get naked, or whatever, and you say yes, don't come crying about it years later. "Oh, but it was someone I wanted something from, so I had no choice but to say yes, so now I cant trust men"   Whaaaaaaaa!   ( some money / fame will help me get over it. )

This is not even the same thing as Wienstein , who apparently was an actual rapist.

We live in a society in which everything is permitted and nothing is forgiven.  We've been extoling sexual license for decades now and then when someone succumbs, we give him the scarlet-letter treatment.  He's tarred and feathered and run out of town on a rail.

We'd be far better off being less permissive and more forgiving. 

I know nothing of Louis C. K.  But I do admire his statement.  It was eloquent, and, as far as I could tell, sincere.  I hope he gets a second chance.

This article isn't about pedophilic type sex offenders [Edit: OT] but I recommend that you watch the first video on this article.  What you will see is sex offenders very convincingly stating how they are innocent victims and then immediately following that you will watch them admit their crimes.  The point of this exercise is that there is a pattern to their denial and how they do it. 


Kevin Spacey:

"I have a lot of respect and admiration for Anthony Rapp as an actor. I’m beyond horrified to hear his story. I honestly do not remember the encounter, it would have been over 30 years ago. But if I did behave as he describes, I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior, and I a sorry for the feelings he describes having carried with him all these years."

I knew this sexual pervert freak had to be connected to the (((Tribe)))...his grandfather...Szekely Schweiger.

He's worse than a monkey in a zoo.

I don't care. I think he's funny. Maybe he can work it into his routine.

Because the holohoax! Look, nazi squirrels!

Ms No's picture

Gross.  I bet he has four inch long pubes that stick out in every direction like he just stuck his finger in a light socket.  "Touch my stinky pecker bitch.  TOUCH IT!"  That's why these guys have to get famous to begin with.  Women run from them like the plague and then they spend their existence trying to find a way to keep them from running.

The murk that is life inside the Tribeway is some noxious stuff, Just look at samples of the diseased content oozing from every crack and orifice.

Scrub the Internet of all Louis C.K video.  Make him an unperson.

Suicide is the only sincere form of regret.

He's a comedian is he?

Too funny, I can't stop laughing at this schadenfreude.


Eddielaidler's picture

His family is probably far more damaged than those women not running away from him at the first sight of his perversion. Unless they all masturbate at the dinner table.

Robert Trip's picture

Bye asshole.

Another one that apologizes and "suffers" remorse after they have been found out and exposed.

Fuck off.

The seedy Jewish underbelly of the entertainment indusfry is slowly being brought out into the light.

About time.

LadyAtZero's picture

I hardly know who he is.  Which is probably a good thing.

Grandad Grumps's picture

He did not actually apologize and ask for foregiveness, now did he?

Miss Expectations's picture

Well, now his mom knows why he never went on second dates.

Anyone who makes time to read this stupid crap in the middle of the day and then post comments about m-tbation....has way too much slime on their hands.

Sometimes you surprise me. That's why I think you're the best troll here. If you remember, when you first joined, I went to bat for you. Everyone was kicking your ass, but I saw something in you. You should renounce your Share Blue money and become a decent human.

KFBR392's picture

since when is showing off your dick after asking nicely a crime? maybe he has a nice one. doubt it but maybe. oh wait....now i gwt it...........wait......  nope still dont. i bet sarah silverman would have sucked it.

Interested_Observer's picture

Well I write off most of this stuff as 'men acting stupid' my whole life.

My latest episode in the life of 'men acting stupid' was my neighbor's husband who decided to show me his dick in an attempt for a pick up. Seriously. I laughed at him and had another drink.

"Look at my ginger cock bitch."  Uhhhuuhuuuuh....  "Pretend you're my brother!  Pretend you're my brother!"

Bring back Andrew Dice Clay.

That should put the libturds in a coma LoL !

And yet he had all these years to say sorry but didn't.

HoPewGassed's picture

I always though Louis C.K. was nothing but a reprobate piece of dirt.  However, this has got to be the most manly and unconditional acceptance of responsibility I have ever read.  My hat's off to the man, and may God bless his journey towards where he needs to be. 

Umh's picture

Louis C.K. with an apparent complete lack of empathy is playing the ignorance card and will probably get away with it. He sounds like an asshole to me and perhaps a psychopath.

amadeus39's picture

What's this about his journey towards where he need to be? He needs to be locked up His journey should be short and painful straight to hell. This planet earth needs protection from this alien.


Nobodys Home's picture

I've read 2 posts of yours. Never seen you before. You seem kinda weird. However, I agree that he is a reprobate POS.
When are you going to post a bitly link?

ms84124's picture

Now compare this with Roy Moore's response: "I believe you and I have a duty to stand up and fight back against the forces of evil waging an all-out war on our conservative values," and decide for yourself who is a better human being. This is the test. The test of YOU.

Robert Trip's picture

He's a flasher.

Flasher treatment recommended in an exotic rehab facility.

No time, no community service.

Just a little lib counselling and he'll be back of the road flashing his dick.

What a fucking pervert.
